Over a year ago, SiteGround began the important task of preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - a new law designed to protect the personal data and privacy of EU residents. While working on this implementation we have seen that the main principles behind the law are genuinely good for our users. The regulation aims to make personal data processing more transparent and to give people more control over their data. Even though the GDPR only applies to EU citizens, we have decided to go beyond and adopt the same good policies for all of our users, regardless of their citizenship or location. The new rules are becoming effective on 25th of May 2018. The following two documents apply these rules to our service:
